A Fast and Easy Way to Make Posters for Your Classroom

You know how kids commonly use the “My printer was out of ink” line?

I think it’s legit, because it seems like my printer is always out of ink! I am semi-cheap and never use color ink.  I also never get to the store to buy black ink until I’m desperate. (Like the kids need something printed).

In the middle of August I purchased this poster bundle on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Over 65 posters for ELA and Reading!  (See link below)

I have become a regular customer at Lovin’ Lit. I purchased her interactive notebook unit for literature and also received the informational text unit. I absolutely love what I’ve used  in my classroom so far. (Future blog post alert!)

These posters are bright and colorful (which lead to this blog about printing).  We have a color printer at school but it’s not really for general use.

My solution was to email them to Staples and have them printed in color.

For 22 full color 8.5 x 11 in. posters on premium white paper, it cost me around $13.

I think I am going to have the PTG laminating lady laminate each set as I get to it in my lesson plans.

However, I stumbled upon a pretty neat idea that I may like better. I need to run to Joann’s later (for the third time this weekend) and try it out.  Stay tuned….
